Why I chose HOLISTIC ? Back a few years ago, when i first met with this word. I really thought it is something related to the word of HOLY. Of course I am not googling the word just because I read for pleasure and it is okey if i do not know the meaning of one or two words. But right after that, HOLISTIC keep chasing me. I always found this word so many times. Until one day i finally reached one of my thick volume of dictionary and look up for the word. Ahaaaa.... i laugh to myself. The definition is totally contrast with the one I have in mind. Holistic vs Holy. It is okey and life goes on. But my life a step higher than before.
I get used with this word in Bahasa Melayu and I don't care very much.
Holistic = Menyeluruh
But getting to know this word in English does make a different in my life. I was so ignorant for this word long time ago but today i found how useful this word for me. I used to use "the whole...of anything" in writing. But now I know how "holistic" reflect my life. It is never too late and I still learning.
Learning never ends.
Reflections of "holistic".
To see one's life holistically as a daughter or son, as employee or self-employed, student or learner and most ultimately as a khalifah in this world.
